30 - Hightech/Lowtech

Technology (hightech) and technological revolutions have long had an influence on social norms (lowtech). This relationship between the two poses new questions about mankind’s search for meaning, and in doing so it asks us to reassess the very nature of art, and of technology, and their interaction, identity, and influence upon themselves and society.

This topic was the foundation for a series of events, titled hightech/lowtech, which were held at the Forum Stadtpark in Graz, Austria in 2000. Organized by AVL in collaboration with the steirische herbst international festival for contemporary art, the program aimed to answer questions about the relationship between technology and aesthetic engineering, the accessibility of technology for artistic productions, and the understanding of technology in art.

As well as an art exhibition, the hightech/lowtech program of events involved workshops, art seminars, presentations, lectures, forums, films, videos and concerts.
